Issue with Icon fons being used instead of standard fonts on some sites

  • Hi, I'm having a weird issue with Opera.

    On some sites text is shown with the icon font instead of the standard font.


    This impacts legibility somewhat.

    Does anyone else have this, and does anyone know a solution?

  • Version of Opera? Presto-based Opera (12.x and earlier) has a known issue with web fonts, though actually I'm not seeing any when I look at that page ... interesting that it only effects a few letters (t=twitter, f=facebook, r-RSS, g and sometimes d)

  • The version is 12.16

    but a check for updates tells me I'm running the latest version.

    Isn't the higher version still in beta ? (Though it might be better than my current version, besides this font issue I don't have any issues)

    Try to disabe all extensions/user JS/filtering.

    Opera 12.16 is the latest and the last (forever). Development of Opera as you knew it has ceased.
    The browsers labeled as Opera with higher version numbers are a total different browser. The only resemblance with Opera 12 is the red Opera-icon.
    You can install it alongside Opera 12 and see for yourself. Don't blame me in case you won't like it.
    BTW, some of them are final releases.
